The TRADITIONAL Horse Hair is now widely used to describe a mixture of hogs hair and horse mane. Pure horse tail or mane hair being difficult to obtain and extremely expensive. Our 'Horse' Hair is 100% animal hair, making a good filler for second stuffing. It is easy to use and shape.
Available in 500grm packs, and 2kilo packs.
The amount of filling used in a piece of furniture depends on a lot of different factors and an upholsterer will have a large sack beside the workbench and just take what he/she needs using experience to get the effect required. But as a rough guide 250 grms. for a drop-in Dining Seat: 500grms. for a Stuff-over Dining Seat (second stuffing). and 2 kilos for an Traditional Armchair Seat (second stuffing) Fillings should be held in place with Lightweight Hessian, and Cotton/Wool Felt or Skin Wadding is used a barrier to stop the fibre working its way to the top Fabric.
